The Hyatt Foundation Appoints Justice Stephen Breyer as Chair of the Jury

Chicago, IL (August 16, 2018) - The Hyatt Foundation appoints Justice Stephen Breyer as Chair of the Pritzker Architecture Prize Jury following the retirement of the most recent Chair, Glenn Murcutt, announced Tom Pritzker, Chairman. The Prize is known internationally as architecture’s highest honor and this year will mark the 41st year of the accolade.

“It is with great pleasure that we designate Justice Breyer as Jury Chair,” comments Mr. Pritzker. “His devotion to civic-minded architecture underscores the mission of the Prize and his unparalleled ability to guide a group deliberation is essential in creating a unified voice within this diverse and international panel of jurors.”

Justice Breyer has been a member of the Jury since 2011 and has a longstanding interest in architecture. He and Judge Douglas Woodlock, representing the federal government as client, worked closely with Harry Cobb, who designed the John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse and Harbor Park in Boston. Justice Breyer also wrote the foreword to Celebrating the Courthouse: A Guide for Architects, Their Clients, and the Public (W. W. Norton & Company).  He was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in 1980 and become Chief Judge in 1990. In 1994 he was appointed a Supreme Court Justice by President Clinton.

Following the retirement of Glenn Murcutt and Lord Peter Palumbo, who served as Chair from 2005 to 2016, the other jury members for the 2019 award will include André Corrêa do Lago, architectural critic, curator, and Brazilian Ambassador to Japan, Tokyo, Japan; Richard Rogers, architect and 2007 Pritzker Laureate, London, United Kingdom; Kazuyo Sejima, architect, educator and 2010 Pritzker Laureate, Tokyo, Japan; Benedetta Tagliabue, architect and director of EMBT Miralles Tagliabue, Barcelona, Spain; Ratan N. Tata, Chairman of Tata Trusts, Mumbai, India; and Wang Shu, architect, educator, and 2012 Pritzker Laureate, Hangzhou, China. Martha Thorne, Executive Director of the Pritzker Prize and also Dean of IE School of Architecture and Design manages the open nominations process, which accepts suggestions from architects from all over the world.

The 2018 Pritzker Prize was most recently awarded to Balkrishna Doshi in Toronto, Canada, and the 2019 Laureate will be announced next spring.
